It’s stressful enough to have the holiday meals on our back and to add gift giving to the equation, is just too much. Once comes Thanksgiving, Christmas is chasing it as if it was the same holiday. I’m pretty much a scrooge when it comes to Christmas, I just want to be left alone to eat, party, rinse and repeat. But if you’re the gift-buying type this is what I used to do.

Start early, start now! Don’t procrastinate anymore because before you know it December 25th will be here and you might have to grab some gas station gifts. Try to avoid crowded malls, not unless that’s your thing. Begin by making a list of everyone you need to buy for and then start shopping online. I bet you have an Auntie who shops the sales the dat after Christmas in preparation for the year ahead, that’s cool if that’s your method. Then, there are the folks that live for Black-Friday deals, and that can be fun if you have a crew shopping with you. I just happen to be an Amazon girl because let’s be honest, it’s cheaper than department stores and way less stressful. Get that shopping done early so you can relax or choose to party up a storm and wake the neighbors.
